To the treasurer and barons of the exchequer. Whereas the king in 
his parliament at Westminster at the quinzaine of Michaelmas, 
in the third year of his reign, ordained that no Jew of the 
realm should thenceforth lend anything in usury to any Christian upon '^ 
lands, rents or other things, but should earn his living by 'trade and 
labour, and the Jews afterwards, maliciously deliberating amongst them- 
selves, changed the kind of usury into a worse, which they called 
* courtesy ' (curialitatew), and depressed the king's people under colour of 
such by an error double that of the previous one ; wherefore the king, by 
reason of their errors and for the honour of Christ, has caused the Jews to 
leave his realm as perfidious men ; the king, not wishing to be incon- 
sistent with his previous ordinance, but rather to imitate it, has wholly 
annulled all manner of pains and usury and every sort thereof that may 
be exacted from any Christians of the realm for any reasons whatever by 
reason of Jewry for any times whatsoever, willing that nothing shall be 
exacted from the Christians except the principal debts that they received 
from the Jews ; of which debts he wills that the amount shall be verified 
before the treasurer and barons by the oath of three Christians, and that 
they shall be then paid to the king at suitable terms to be appointed by 
the treasurer and barons. He therefore orders them to cause his grace 
thus piously made to be read in the exchequer, and to cause it to be 
enrolled in the rolls of the exchequer, and to cause it to be firmly 
observed in accordance with the form above noticed.

MemoTandu7n, that the earl came into chancery, at Westminster, on 12 
June, and prayed that this -deed might be enrolled in the rolls of chancery; 
which was granted to him by E. bishop of Bath and Wells, then the 
chancellor, saving the right of others. 

To pope Nicholas. The king, bearing in mind the affection always 
displayed by the pope for the increase of the king's honour and realm, 
is unable to understand or even to believe that certain collations and 
executions lately published in parts of his realm by apostolic authority, 
as it is said, have proceeded with the pope's knowledge. For it is said 
that the pope has appropriated a prebend in York and another in 
Lincoln to the churches of the hospital of San Spirito in Sassia (Saxia) 
at Eome, and to the basilica of St. Peter, at the suit of Sir N. (sic) 
cardinal deacon of St. Mary in Porticu, and that the pope has sent, in 
order to obtain possession of the prebends, most grievous executions, 
hitherto unheard of in this realm, which, if carried into effect, would 
threaten the diminution of divine religion, would change the wishes of 
the original donors, would withdraw the accustomed alms from the poor 
of the realm, and would result in the manifest disinheritance of the king 
and his heirs and would afford a pernicious example for the future, 
when these perpetual alienations would lead to others, whereby in a short 
time the churches of the realm would be deformed and be deprived of 
the service of ministers owing to the withdrawal of stipends, when the 
incomes of the church have been assigned to foreign uses. In the king's 
judgement this would not be pleasing to the Most High, who desires the 
cult of His name to be so spread that for the endowment of one altar 
another shall not be despoiled. The king therefore beseeches the pope 
to consider the premises, and to provide a suitable and wholesome remedy 
in this behalf. The king cannot be so lukewarm as not to avoid to the 
full extent of his power his disinheritance, which touches the estate of 
his crown, to maintain which he is bound by his oath. He requests the 
pope to write back his pleasure herein by the exhibitor of these presents.

18 EDWARD I. 135

To M. cardinal deacon of St. Mary in Porticu. The cardinal's letter 
lately directed to the king contained amongst other things that the king's 
clerks Master J. de Lasci and W. de Pikering had been preferred 
(dispares) to the cardinal in the king's friendship and service. The king 
confesses that this is true, but he does not compare in anywise the service 
hitherto rendered to him by them, or hereafter to be rendered, to the 
cardinal's acceptable friendship, which the king not only desires to be 
continued in his time, and to be continuously increased, and to confer his 
royal favour in those things that are to the honour of the cardinal, so far 
as this may be done without injury to the crown. But the provisions 
made to the cardinal of prebends of York and Lincoln would be to the 
king's disinheritance, the injury of his crown, and the scandal of the 
people, if they were carried to the effect desired by the cardinal. The king, 
who is bound by oath to preserve the estate of his crown, therefore cannot 
and will not sustain these provisions, much as he desires to the cardinal's 
honour and profit. Even if the king were willing to accept these provisions, 
the proceres and magnates of his realm would not permit them with 
equanimity. Concerning the cardinal's recommendation of his envoys 
to the king, the king informs him that not only they but also all others 
charged with the cardinal's affairs in the king's realm will be safe, with 
God's will. [Prynne, iii. 418.] 

To the body of cardinals of the Roman church. The king cannot 
conceive that the collations and executions lately published in England by 
the authority of the apostolic see, as it is said, proceeded with the knowledge 
of the sacred college [etc. as in the preceding letter to the pope]. He desires 
them to write back their pleasure by the exhibitor of the presents. 
[Prynne, iii. 418.] 

To pope Nicholas. Letter from Edmund, son of the king of England, 
William de Valencia, earl of Pembroke, Edmund, earl of Cornwall, Gilbert 
de Clare, earl of Gloucester and Hertford, John de Warenna, earl of 
Surrey, Henry de Lacy, earl of Lincoln, Humphrey de Boho an, earl of 
Hereford and Essex, John de Hastingges, Richard son of John, John de 
Sancto Johanne, William de Brewose, William le Latymer, Roger de 
Monte Alto, and Walter de Huntercumb, barons, and the other earls, 
barons and proceres of the realm of England. Considering the paternal 
affection and pious goverment with which the apostolic see ruled the 
church of England in old times and nourished the fervid devotion of the 
inhabitants of the realm, they cannot conceive that certain collations 
and executions lately published in England *•* [etc. as in the letter to the 
pope]. They request the pope to provide a suitable and wholesome 
remedy, for the honour of God, the advancement of the realm of England 
and of the royal crown, which they are bound by oath to observe, 
and desire that the pope will cause these things to be observed by his 
pious protection, to the cherishing of their devotion, so that the alms 
conferred by their ancestors upon the English church shall not be 
transferred to others. [Feeder a ; FarU Writs ; Prynne, iii. 417.]

for themselves as for John de Kedole, Gerard de Briole, and other their 
fellows, citizens and merchants of Cahors, and both parties promised to 
abide by the arbitration of Nicholas de Warwyk and Boger de Scotere 
concerning all disagreements, actions, challenges and demands up to the 
feast of the Purification last past. The arbitrators, after examining the 
writings between the parties, ordain that the merchants shall have all the 
wool of the house of Pippewell, both the common wool of the house and 
the ' tailler ' wool {lanam tailler') of the same, for the year 1291 and for 
twelve years following, paying for the first three years 18 marks sterling 
for each sack of good wool of that house, 14 marks for each sack of 
medium wool, and 10 marks for each sack of lock-wool {saccum loccarum), 
and for the following ten years 21 marks for a sack of good % wool, 
14 marks for each sack of medium wool, and 13 marks for each sack 
of lock- wool ; packed so that the wool called ' tayller ' of the house shall 
be packed (brusetur) among the common wool of the house in the form of 
common wool by the preparer [preparatorem) of the said merchants sworn 
for this purpose. For which wool the merchants have paid in earnest to 
the monks 106L 13s. id,, which the monks are bound to allow to the 
merchants in the preparation to be made to them at Boston for the said 
wool in the following manner : in the first year 10 marks and for the ten 
following years lOOL, that is lOZ. a year. The merchants shall pay to 
them in each of the thirteen years at London on the third Sunday after 
Martinmas on account of the wool 63/. 6s. Sd., and on the fourth Sunday 
after Easter 73Z. 6s. Sdr, which sums the monks shall allow to the 
merchants in the full payment due to them each year for the wool afore- 
said, which full payment the merchant shall make (fac) to the monks at 
Boston fair in six weeks from Midsummer, and at the said day and place 
the monks shall render to them the said wool prepared, packed (bursatas), 
and weighed according to the ancient and due custom of the abbey, and 
faithfully packed (impaccatas) in the sarplers of the monks, at the expense 
of the monks, in each of the thirteen years ; for which wool the merchants 
shall pay toll. Forasmuch as the merchants were wont to receive the 
' tayller ' wool of the said house entirely, and**^* it is now ordained that it shall 
be packed (bursetur) among the common wool, and the monks shall pay to 
the merchants for divers trespasses and damages inflicted upon them two 
sacks of wool of the house as it leaves the sheepfold, well washed, dry, and 
cleaned, at the place and term aforesaid in each of the thirteen years ; which 
two sacks shall be received from all the wool of the house before any of it be 
packed (bursetur). If the monks fail in payment of the said two sacks in 
any year, the merchants shall be quit of 16 marks of the full payment due to 
the monks for each sack not delivered. It is ordained that the merchants' 
preparer shall be at the costs and expenses of the abbey so long as he 
shall be occupied about the preparation of the wool, to wit food, drink 
and lodging, and that he shall prepare the wool well and faithfully with- 
out hindrance from the monks as he has been wont to do hitherto ; and 
that the merchants shall have free entry and issue to the preparer while 
he is thus occupied. After preparation of the wool have been made by 
the preparer, neither party shall have power to reject or refuse any part 
of the wool against his deed, or to challenge his proceedings in any way. 
The monks shall give to the preparer during the said term ^yq stones of 
common wool of the abbey as it leaves the sheepfold. It is ordained that 
the wool-shed (lanar) in which the wool shall be and has been wont to be 
prepared shall be got ready with boards firmly attached that the wool shall

reach from the land or pavement of the wool- shed to the height of half a foot, 
and in the same way the said wool -shed shall be got ready with boards firmly 
attached along [jper) the walls about the wool during the term aforesaid. 
It is also ordained that 900 of the common two-tooth sheep (bidentibus) of the 
abbey shall be separated, half of which shall be ewes and the other half 
males, by the view of the merchants before Mid-Lent next, which sheep 
the monks shall hold of the merchants and they shall be signed with the 
mark of both parties, and shall then remain in divers places with the two- 
tooth sheep of the monks in as good pasture and custody of the abbey as 
the monks' own two-tooth sheep, at the costs of the abbey, with' all their 
issue, accordingly as the pastures may sufl&ce for the number of heads, 
until they come to the number of 2,000, so that the merchants shall have 
a moiety of the wool of all the said sheep each year. If any of the said 
sheep shall die, their skins shall be sold each year by the view 
of a man deputed for this purpose by the merchants, and the money 
thence arising shall be expended upon other two -tooth sheep for the 
use of the parties until the number of 2,000 be reached ; and the man 
thus deputed by the merchants shall survey the said two-tooth sheep at 
his will, and in his presence or the presence of any of the said society the 
issues arising from the aforesaid 900 sheep shall be marked each year 
until the number of 2,000 be reached, so that the monks shall not 
contravene the form of this ordinance in aught. When the number of 2,000 
have been completed, the rest of the issue with the wool of the aforesaid 
1,000 (sic) shall be equally divided between the monks and the merchants 
and taken away every year, so that the number of 2,000 shall remain until 
the end of the said term, which number both parties are bound to make up 
in their proportion when it shall fall short. At the completion of the term 
the 2,000 sheep with their issue of the same year shall be equally divided, 
and the monks shall acquit the merchants *** of all tithes due by reason of 
any two-toothed sheep delivered to them by the merchants at any time 
before the making of this deed, and the merchants shall hereafter pay the 
tithes in their proportion. As the monks have not satisfied the merchants 
for a sack of wool in which they were bound to them for last year, as 
appears by the abbot's recognisance, and have not answered sufficiently for 
the issues of 783 two-tooth sheep for two years, it is ordained that the monks 
shall deliver to them three sacks of common wool of the abbey without * cot,* 
'gard,' black, gray, * clacc,' and without any villain fleece, and 40s. for the 
merchants' damages by reason of the detention of the aforesaid sack, at 
Boston at the monks' cost in the delivery of the other wool of the house in 
the year 1291, together with &Ye stones of entire wool of the house in which 
the monks were indebted to the merchants' preparer for the past year, for 
which the merchants have satisfied him. As the monks have acknow- 
ledged that they have received a loan from the merchants at the time of the 
making of the present deed of 120^., it is ordained that the monks shall 
allow to them and their fellows the said sum of money in the full pay- 
ment due to them for the wool for the first six years of the term, to wit 
20Z. yearly, in the said fair. The merchants shall give to the monks at 
the said day and place yearly a tun of good wine for the celebration of 
mass in the said house. If the monks in any year during this term shall 
sell good medium wools or locks (loccas) to any other merchants or do 
[not] deliver (solvere) all the wool at the place and times ordained, 
they shall be bound to pay to the merchants, so soon as they 
have been convicted of so doing, 20Z. for each sack of good wool,

To Robert de Valle Regali, escheator in co. Chester. Order to deliver

appears to the king by inspection of the charters of Hugh, Richard, and 
Ranulph, sometimes earls of Chester, made to God and the church of 
St. Werburgh and the monks there serving God, of tenures, possessions 
and liberties of that church, and by the king's confirmation that the earls 
granted the tenures, things and all their possessions, with all other things 
pertaining to the abbey, so free and quit from all custom and 
from everything that they retained nothing in the premises except 
prayers and the benefits of the monks, and that they gave to them 
the honour of St. Werburgh so free and quit for the soul of King 
William and the souls of all of them, so that after the said earls no one 
could add any liberty or quittance further to the church and monks ; and 
further it is found, after searching the rolls of his exchequer of West- 
minster and of his exchequer of Chester, and by inquisitions taken by 
Reginald de Grey, justice of Chester, and by the said escheator, that the 
late king, after the earldom of Chester came to his hands, received nothing 
for his use at the times of the voidance of the abbey from the goods or 
issues thereof and had no other custody thereof except that the justice of 
Chester at the times of such voidances placed a serjeant in the abbey, who 
had under him a keeper in the cellar and another keeper at the gate of the 
abbey, who was to keep the goods and issues of the abbey without damage 
as the free almshouse of the late king, and that the keepers received their 
charges and expenses only from the issues of the abbey, and that the 
abbots of the abbey created in the late king's time did not grant any 
pension by reason of their new creation to any of the said, king's clerks ; 
and the king after Simon's death, believing that the custody of the abbey 
and the issues thereof pertained to him as those of other abbeys that are 
of his crown, caused the abbey and the issues thereof to be taken into his 
hands, and sought a pension from abbot Thomas by reason of his new 
creation to be granted to one of the king's clerks, and he does not wish 
that harm should hereafter befall the abbey by reason of the taking into 
his hands of it and the issues and the exaction of the pension aforesaid, 
and has therefore rendered to the abbot all the issues received by reason 
of the voidance.

rendered into the king's hands all the land that they held in Marnham,

Jew of the realm by reason whereof the king can exact any debt from 
them, nevertheless the sheriff of Bedford exacts 16Z. from them for 
debt aforesaid by summons of the exchequer, and the king learns by

the manor was in his hands, granted by charter to Walter de Chidecroft 2d, 
a day from the issues of the manor for life for keeping the warren of the 
manor, and 10s. yearly for his robe, and that Walter always received 
these sums until the manor came to the king's hands and to the hands of 
Queen Eleanor, his consort ; wherefore it was decided before Master 
Ralph de Ivingho and his fellows, hearers of complaints against the said

de Vicopisano, a member of the king of Hungary's household and his env6y, 
the bearer of these presents, containing amongst other things credence, and 
the king understands the things signified by them as well as the things 
the envoy has explained to him. Concerning those things that the king 
of Hungary has caused to be offered to the king for the service of God and 
the honour and exaltation of the Christian faith, the king thanks him 
greatly, perceiving from this the great and tender affection that the king 
of Hungary bears to the matter of the miserable state of the Holy Land 
and to the service of Him who dedicated that land with His blood. But 
before the king received the envoy, it was ordained and the king had 
determined to make his passage by sea, from which resolution he is 
unable to recede. The king, however, renews his thanks for the 
thousand knights and mounted archers that the king of Hungary offers for 
a year at his own cost by land to the king in aid of the said land. 
Although the king is unable for the reason aforesaid and for other 
causes to direct his journey through the king of Hungary's parts, he 
beseeches the king of Hungary that his divinely-inspired wish for the aid 
of the Holy Land may not cool. If it please him to send some of his

was afterwards made to Thomas de Normanvill, who had the 
custody of the castle by the king's commission as maker of profit

his suffiragan, to be sufficiently admonished in the first instance to cause to 
be dehvered John de Amelya, notary public by apostolic authority, and 
William de Wrelton called ' de Pikering,' clerks of the archbishop, whom 
the archbishop sent to the bishop (whom he expected to find, in accordance 
with the canons, in the church of Durham) with letters of the archbishop 
and of • • . his official, containing canonical orders, and whom John de 
Meydestan, constable of Durham, and his accomplices took and imprisoned, 
the bishop ordering this or confirming ex post facto what had been done 
m his name, and that he should satisfy the said clerks for the violence and 
the archbishop and his church of York for the wrong and contempt ; but 
the bishop did not obey or neglected this admonition, whereupon the 
archbishop ordered him to release the clerks under pain of sentence of sus- 
pension from entry into church, and that he should satisfy them and the 
archbishop ; but the bishop did not deliver the clerks, wherefore the arch- 
bishop for the third time ordered him, under pain of excommunication, 
to dehver them and to satisfy them and the archbishop. But the bishop 
did not release the clerks within the term fixed by the archbishop, 
but held them^ longer in prison, by reason whereof he has clearly 
incurred the said sentences of suspension and excommunication. The 
archbishop therefore commits to the prior authority to proceed so to 
the declaration of the said sentences and to the execution and publication 
of them that he may merit commendation, denouncing and publishing in 
the churches of Alyerton and Derhngton and other solemn places of the
